The Alumni Relations Team has had an exciting and busy 2014 so
far - having interacted with many graduates at a range of events (including
Student Chapter meetings, the Durban Alumni Association gatherings and the Cape
Town Alumnus Dinner) and via email, written and telephonic communication.
Communication via the website, Facebook, Twitter and SMS has increased and is an effective
way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. There is a range of
activities still to take place and these include the Convocation AGM, the
Lesotho Alumnus Lunch, dinners in Johannesburg and Pretoria, a supper theatre
event in Pietermaritzburg, the annual London-based event as well as a number of
other events in Durban, Richards Bay and the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.
In order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep
everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current
contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile phone
numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and
have not received any correspondence from the University during 2013 to provide
us with their updated contact details. This can be done via the website.
The Alumni Relations Team looks forward to interacting and meeting with alumni
and welcomes suggestions on how we can build stronger relationships with all
our fellow graduates.
With our very best wishes,
The Alumni Relations Team.
